SSWGA Turkey Shoot

The final SSWGA event of the year was hosted by BWGA at Shreveport Country Club on November 19th.  Due to extremely low temperatures the night before, we were delayed in teeing off due to frost on the greens; therefore the Turkey Scramble became a 9-hole Turkey Scramble with 24 ladies participating.  It ended up being a beautiful day, concluding with the SSWGA Annual Meeting/Luncheon and presentation of the day’s awards as well as the end-of-year awards.

There were two ladies who had 100% participation in all seven of the SSWGA events for the year:  Grace Ireland (PCC) and Mary Coker (SCC).   There were an additional ten ladies who had at least 80% participation.
Low gross for the year was Debbie Magee (WGAS) with an 84.8 average.  Grace Ireland took Low Net average with 71.6, and Marge Snyder (NHGC) had the average low putts with 32.5.
And the Most Improved golfer was Pat Rice (SCC) with an amazing improvement from an index of 30.1 to 23.7.  That didn’t just “happen”.  Good work, Pat!

New Officers were elected at this meeting with Susan Berry (NHGC) continuing as President in 2015.  Other officers will be listed in the right column of this blog.

Now for the Turkey Scramble winners:
FIRST PLACE:
Cathy Buckley/Kyong Lee/Barbara McQuiller – 35

SECOND PLACE:
Debbie Magee/Martha Lawhorne/Donna Ihle/Jean Brown – 36

THIRD PLACE:
Vicki Cella/Marge Snyder/Tommye Engelcke/Janet Sabo – 37

FOURTH PLACE:
Nina Glorioso/Kathleen McCoy/Jeanette Bohringer/Barbara Offer – 37

There was one chip-in by Debbie Magee.

SWGA Turkey Scramble

Lots of ladies originally signed up to play the SWGA Turkey Scramble at Palmetto CC since it was the last SWGA event that would ever be played there. However, the weather raised it’s ugly head and after all the cancellations, twenty-five brave ladies participated in the abbreviated 9-hole event on November 13.
Ladies were barely recognizable under the layers of clothing and hiding behind golf cart covers, but the spirits were high when everyone came in to enjoy a hot lunch after playing just nine holes of the scramble. The scores were close in spite of the high winds and cold temperatures. There was just a 3-stroke difference between first and fifth places with two scorecard playoffs.
FIRST PLACE:
Cella/Butterfield/Gansfuss/McCoy

SECOND PLACE:
Hollier/Heins/Ireland

THIRD PLACE:
Wyche/Snyder/Magee/Almond

FOURTH PLACE:
Zey/Alexander/K. Lee/Engelcke

FIFTH PLACE:
Buckley/Ihle/Moore

Closest to the Pin: Grace Ireland

Longest Drive: Cathy Buckley

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to Palmetto Ladies group and staff for all the years of wonderful events. You will be sorely missed!
